Board of Airport Commissioners Awards $209M Design-Build Contract to Swinerton Builders for Intermodal Transportation Facility - West

(Los Angeles, CA) Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) Board of Airport Commissioners (BOAC) approved a contract for a not-to-exceed amount of $209M to Swinerton Builders to design and construct the Intermodal Transportation Facility – West (ITF-West), an integral component of the Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP).  

The ITF-West, located between Westchester Parkway and 96th Street, is a five-level parking structure containing approximately 4,700 parking spaces, a dedicated concessions area, and the LAX Security and Badging Office. The ITF-West will also include a pick-up and drop-off curb for both commercial and private vehicles and will be served by new roadways providing direct access to the facility. The ITF-West station, located adjacent to the parking structure, will eventually provide a direct connection with the terminals via the Automated People Mover (APM) system, vastly improving the guest experience. The ITF-West will be operational in 2021, which will provide much needed parking capacity to serve LAX travelers. A shuttle will temporarily transport guests to and from the ITF-West until the APM is operational in 2023.
